butter pecan sandies ice-cream with my Dad

Last weekend my parents came up for a visit (the grandkids more than me.)  My dad, who is one of my best readers, loves nuts!  I asked him if we should make butter pecan ice cream and he pulled out a secret stash of pecan sandies cookies from his car.  In addition you can always count on a large jar of roasted peanuts to accompany any trip in that vehicle.  So we set out to work on this little father – daughter creation.  We used the Ben & Jerry’s butter pecan recipe and added 5 crushed Keebler pecan sandies cookies the last 2 minutes of churning, along with the toasted pecans. yummy and rich.

Something else cool about my dad is he is a faithful blood donor at the American Red Cross. I was reading on the Keebler website that the  Keebler elves donate more than 6 million cookies a year to blood drives. I don’t know if that would motivate you to give blood, but I bet that’s what keeps my Dad going back!
